The virus hunters is an expose on doctors who are faced with drug-resistant viruses and new strains of bacteria which are emerging. The price of passion talks about the impact of AIDS around the world - what is being done to help prevent and control AIDS and how new drugs and treatments can be rationed out. Revenge of the microbes discusses doctors around the world who deal with infectious diseases that are resistant to traditional antibiotitics such as penicillin. This hour of the program talks about the shrinking arsenal of drugs available to treat disease.
